The world’s leading organizations are not happy with good enough; they’re constantly looking for new ways to innovate, boost productivity and efficiency, and reduce costs. These same companies long ago started taking full advantage of the power of EHS software to improve and streamline their processes and eliminate injuries.
However, even today, with how integral technology is in every aspect of our personal and professional lives, companies still manage something as crucial as EHS on paper. The old saying goes, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, and that’s the mentality many organizations have to justify their hesitancy or refusal to digitize EHS. Unfortunately, these companies fail to realize that their current process is broken, and it broke a long time ago.
Organizations that don’t adopt EHS software miss out on a long list of significant benefits. In 2023, there are simply no more excuses for companies to manage any portion of EHS on paper. The harsh reality is that if your organization hasn’t digitized its EHS management process, you’re being left in the dust by your competitors.
Outdated and Ineffective EHS Management Systems
EHS plays an integral role in the continued success of a business and has only grown in importance as the regulatory compliance obligations placed on businesses expand and become more complex. Unfortunately, even with so many great software solutions, many companies still attempt to manage the process of EHS with spreadsheets, calendars pinned on the safety department wall, and paper documents haphazardly filed away in a rusty file cabinet sitting in a corner.
While this may have been necessary as the company grew, it’s no longer needed or wise to continue in this way. In fact, these Frankenstein-like EHS management systems can become out of control and dangerous, possibly causing severe damage to the company that created them.
These systems are often unorganized and inefficient, time-consuming to manage and leave huge gaps many companies don’t even notice, exposing them to unnecessary risk. In addition, because these spreadsheets, processes, and applications don’t communicate between themselves, companies lose the ability to spot trends and issues, which could make a safer, more proactive workplace.
Software and Digitization Are The Answer
Technology helps companies automate complicated processes creating efficiency and the ability to solve complex issues that have plagued the industry for years. As a result, they’re more efficient, safer, and protect their company’s profitability and reputation better than organizations still managing EHS with paper.
New technology like cloud computing, artificial intelligence, and advanced software have improved and streamlined the EHS process to an astonishing degree. Processes that took countless administrative hours now take seconds and happen with the click of a button.
Data analysis provided technology users with insights into their business processes that they never thought possible, allowing them to make intelligent predictive business decisions that can increase productivity, profitability, compliance, and workplace safety.
Breakthroughs in regulatory compliance, like record keeping and reporting, are now managed by software that can do the job better, faster, and more efficiently. This eliminates immense effort and stress, creates a better result, and reduces the chances of costly errors.
The issues above are nothing new, and a move towards digitizing the EHS management process through software adoption is the best solution and is long overdue for many companies.
